LEGO Land Rover Defender

The LEGO Land Rover Defender is an amazing creation! It is a 1:8.5 scale recreation of Rover's legendary truck, built from nearly 2,800 parts, including 7 motors and 3 IR receivers. It actually runs, controlled via RF with a LEGO-based controller. Along with the intense AWD system and live axles in the front and rear, it also features a five-speed sequential gearbox with an automatic clutch, a two-speed transfer case, and a whole host of working parts like doors, hood, and tailgate. It's currently up on Cuusoo, and needs over 10,000 supporters to become a reality — and pledging your support is free, so there's no reason not to.
